Rosalina,

You should start by reading the Posting Guide - it has helpful advice on how to solve a problem yourself and how to craft postings to get good answers.

The Posting Guide says:

         [some basics deleted]

Do your homework before posting: If it is clear that you have done basic background research, you are far more likely to get an informative response. See also Further Resources further down this page.

         [other helpful suggestions deleted]


and doing exactly that on my system yields:



Help files with alias or concept or title matching .julian. using fuzzy matching:
weekdays(base)                      Extract Parts of a POSIXt or Date 
Object
day.of.week(chron)                  Convert between Julian and Calendar 
Dates
TimeDateCoercion(fCalendar)         timeDate Class, Coercion and 
Transformation
date.ddmmmyy(survival)              Format a Julian date
date.mdy(survival)                  Convert from Julian Dates to Month, 
Day, and Year
date.mmddyy(survival)               Format a Julian date
date.mmddyyyy(survival)             Format a Julian date
mdy.date(survival)                  Convert to Julian Dates



Type 'help(FOO, package = PKG)' to inspect entry 'FOO(PKG) TITLE'.


which should be enough to get you going.

Also, you will want to consult Rnews which had an informative article on handling dates a few years back.

HTH, Chuck
